an eternal Brijbasi
On November 29, 1971, the Chairman of the Vrindavan Municipality, itsmembers and secretaries, and the citizens of Vrindavan Dhama offered thefollowing words of praise to Srila Prabhupada:"O great soul! Today we, the inhabitants of Vrindavan, known as Brijbasis,all combined offer our humble welcome to Your Holiness in this holy place ofVrindavan and in doing so feel very proud. For many years you stayed at theRadha-Damodara Temple and worshiped Her Majesty Srimati Radharani in ameditative mood, and thus you now have the transcendental vision to deliverthe entire world. As proof of your perfection, we can see these foreigndisciples before us, and we feel very proud to see how you have transformedthem. We take it for granted that you are one of us in Vrindavan. We aresure that wherever you travel, you must carry with you the impression of SriVrindavan Dhama. The culture, religion, philosophy, and transcendentalexistence of Sri Vrindavan Dhama travel with you.
"Through the great message Your Holiness carries, all the people of theworld are now becoming very intimately related with Vrindavan Dhama. We arecertainly sure that through your preaching alone the transcendental messageof Vrindavan will spread all over the world."
